In the past, setting up an environment to work with Microsoft s latest and greatest has been relatively straightforward, typically involving only the setup of the latest version of Visual Studio and the appropriate software development kit. However, with Silverlight, the situation is quite a bit different due to the introduction of many new tools. Let s take a look at these new tools: Silverlight 2 Runtime: This is the Silverlight client runtime, which is required on every computer that wishes to view a Silverlight-enabled web application. Silverlight 2 Software Development Kit (SDK): This SDK is a collection of samples, Silverlight QuickStarts, documentation, and controls that are used to develop Silverlight applications. This SDK is not required, but it is recommended that all Silverlight developers download it. Visual Studio 2008: As noted, this is the latest version of Microsoft s IDE, the successor to Visual Studio 2005 (see Figure 1-7). Installing Visual Studio 2008 also automatically installs Microsoft .NET Framework 3.5. There are many new features in Visual Studio 2008 that make it a highly recommended upgrade in general; for serious Silverlight developers, Visual Studio 2008 is a must. 2 covers Visual Studio 2008 in more depth.

Silverlight Tools for Visual Studio 2008: This is an add-on for Visual Studio that provides a Silverlight project system for developing Silverlight applications using C# or Visual Basic. This add-on is required if you wish to take advantage of Visual Studio to build Silverlight applications. The project system includes the following components: Visual Basic and C# project templates IntelliSense and code generators for XAML Debugging of Silverlight applications Web reference support Integration with Expression Blend Microsoft Expression Blend 2: This is a what you see is what you get (WYSIWYG) editor for XAML (see Figure 1-8). Expression Blend is similar to Adobe s Flash MX product. It allows you to lay out the XAML canvas, add timelines, and create transformations all in a very user-friendly and visual way. Expression Blend 2 is covered in 8.

Summary
In this chapter, we looked at the evolution of user interfaces in applications, as well as the history of RIAs. I then introduced Silverlight, and talked about the benefits it brings to developers today and how it fits into RIA solutions. Finally, you learned about the tools involved in developing Silverlight-enabled applications. Now it is time to get your hands dirty and start building some Silverlight applications! In the next chapter, I will provide an introduction to Microsoft Visual Studio 2008, one of the primary tools used to build Silverlight applications.
Introduction to Visual Studio 2008
he previous chapter mentioned the tools required to develop RIAs that utilize the Silverlight technology. At the core of all of these tools is Microsoft s flagship development product, Visual Studio. This chapter provides an introduction to the latest version, Visual Studio 2008. You will learn about some of the new features that are particularly helpful for developers building RIAs with Silverlight, and then work through an exercise to try out Visual Studio 2008 s enhanced JavaScript IntelliSense and debugging support. Finally, you will have an opportunity to create your first Silverlight application using Visual Studio 2008. Let s get started with a brief introduction to the Visual Studio IDE.
Just What Is Visual Studio
Any developer who has developed applications using technologies related to Microsoft s Visual Basic, ASP, or .NET has used some version of Visual Studio on a regular basis. This is because Visual Studio is Microsoft s primary development product. Whether you are developing desktop applications, web applications, mobile applications, web services, or just about any other .NET solution, Visual Studio is the environment you will be using. Visual Studio is an IDE that allows .NET developers to implement a variety of .NET solutions within the confines of one editor. An IDE is a software application that contains comprehensive facilities to aid developers in building applications. Visual Studio fits this description for a number of reasons. First, Visual Studio offers a very rich code-editing solution. It includes features such as source code color-coding and code completion. Second, it offers an integrated debugger, which allows you to place breakpoints in your source code to stop execution at any given point, as well as step through the source line by line, analyzing the state of objects and fields at any given point in the execution. Add to these features rich support for application deployment, installation, and integration with database services, and you can understand how Visual Studio is an extremely valuable tool for developers.
